Indoor Plants for Your Georgetown Apartment

Having a garden may seem irrelevant and somewhat impossible while living in an apartment, but the Longview at Georgetown Blog has a few ideas to make it happen. These tips will help you see your green thumb potential.

House Plants

Buy plants that are good for living indoors. Some plants that work well would be spider plants, aloe vera, snake plants, dracaenas, palms, philodendrons, and succulents. Many plants are also great for purifying your home. Some of these include peace lilies, rubber plants, bamboo palms, snake plants, and dumb canes. Choose the right plant for you and your home. For example, if your apartment doesn’t get a lot of sunlight, choose a plant that’s okay with that. If you aren’t home a lot, find one that’s okay with little watering, such as succulents.

Plant Herbs

Plant herbs that can sit in your kitchen or by a windowsill. They take up very little space and you get the benefit of harvesting what you sow. Sage, thyme, basil, rosemary, and lemongrass all work well to grow inside along with others. One writer says that all herbs can live indoors as long as you take into account the hardiness of the plant, the time of the year you plant them, the air temperature, and the type of soil they live in. Take these into account and you’ll have thriving and fresh herbs all year.

Dying Plants?

If you have the wrong plants living in your apartment, it can be difficult to keep them alive. If you find the right plants, but they still don’t seem to like their environment, learn what you can about those plants and their needs. You can also find some general indicators about what your plant needs. For example, an indicator of overwatering is that the leaves are wilted, droopy, and pliable. A sign of dehydration would be that the tips are brown and the edges are crunchy. Take into account what plants are native to the Georgetown, MA area as well.
